Now, Christians have heaven and hell as do other religons, but What do athiests believe happens to them when they die? Seriosuly, I wanna know this. Do they stick around as ghosts and shadow people haning out with Beetlejuice or what? What do they believe?

What's an athiest? I'm not finding it in the dictionary. Is it the most athy example of something?

Well the word is atheist. And the definition is in the dictionary

Which is pretty much my point. 'athiest' certainly isn't.

So you are making a big deal over spelling??? You know, if you really wanted to post something under this topic that is fine with me. But I really can't understand WHY some people post comments JUST to point out people's spelling. Are you that simple minded and bored where you can't think of your own opinion about a simple topic so you criticize spelling errors? I really cannot understand people like this.

It does not matter what I think in this discussion. I asked about athiests and what THEY believe. Anyway, I believe in heaven and hell and it depends on your actions in your lifetime that determines where you go.

Of course atheists will go straight to hell. They deny the existence of God so they also deny Christ. All unbelievers will have their part in the Lake of Fire.

I'm not sure I had a friend that didnt believe in God or Heaven and he told me when people die there is nothing after that its just like going to sleep and not dreaming I am sure everyones had nights like that. So as far as I know that is what they beleive..dont quote me though lol.

Don't be so sure that only christians have this choice or that even they have this choice. Nothing is certain in this or the next life. No one has come back to say yup its true. There are no ghosts or shadow people. That is for the superstitious and the tricksters. Everyone faces their Maker when they die, and has their chance to face up to what they have done in their life. Everyone gets their own personal last chance. G'd is not a vengeful spiteful G'd. Man has enough of that in him to go around. Man has a choice, to ask for forgiveness and spend eternity with G'd, or to turn his back on G'd and spend eternity without G'd. Eternity with G'd is Heaven. Eternity without G'd is Hell.

It's just like what was said here. You die and then pfft, that's it. Lights out. There are people that don't believe in any form of religion but are still spiritual. A friend of mine and I've talked about it and he believes he's still an energy. Everything is energy and his energy is just absorbed back into the earth or it goes else where - either as a spirit or into another being. I'm not real clear on it and it's hard for me to understand because of my own relm of thinking, but then again, I don't have to.

It depends on how you define athiesm. If you define it as the disbelief in God or supernatural, those who adhere to these beliefs believe that when you die, your life ends. Completely. That's it. There are many other spiritual beliefs that lack the belief in a god/gods but still believe in the supernatural, in which case, some sort of afterlife would be possible.

I suppose real atheists believe you die and...thats it. I am an atheist in the sense that I do not believe in god, however I do think their is likely more than just this human existance. I like to view the world as a curtain. We exist on one side of the curtain now, and when we die we change sides. We can push our hands through said curtain, however we can never really take part of the "other side." As a human, we can interact with the other side (through magick and technological advances). As a "ghost" (I use that word loosely), we can also interact in a physical way--just non-physically. It is an abstract concept.
